Eclipse 3.4 JSP Problem

I recently moved to Ubuntu (Hardy) from Windows and installed Eclipse Ganymede SR1 - JEE Bundle for Linux, and opened some of my previous projects in the Eclipse IDE. I was suprised to see Warnings in my project (which was not there previously), highlighting the page directive declaration of my JSPs.

The line highlighted was:

The Warning is:

I tested the same thing on a fresh project, and Eclipse shows this message even for newly generated JSP files (using the Wizard).

Is there any way to solve this issue ?

Thanks in advance.

Also experiencing same "problem". Will post solution if I find it...

By the way, a workaround to avoid this warning from appearing is changing the warning level from "warning" to "ignore" in Preferences > Web > HTML Files > Validation > Invalid empty element tag

I'm also using Eclipse 3.4 SR1 on both Windows and Ubuntu (Linux). I've noticed many of these kinds of problems - especially in JavaScript files I get many bogus warnings and errors.

I guess that the Web Tools in this Eclipse version are unfortunately quite buggy...

WTP seems very buggy in Ganymede. I've experienced some related problems (Ganymede bug using jsp include directive) and as far as I noticed and read, only workarounds like disabling the validators will do the trick.
I agree. Here's the link:
